WETHERSFIELD, CT (WFSB) -

The Department of Motor Vehicles is expected to update the public on the office closures it slated for next week.

Commissioner Andres Ayala, Jr. and project managers said various DMV registration-related services will be suspended while department upgrades its computer systems.

The computer modernization will affect millions of drivers statewide, Ayala said. However, he promised it would make the DMV easier for drivers.

From Aug. 11 to 15, the DMV said it would only be open for licensing services and other scheduled administrative functions. Employees were also told to report to work as usual.

All DMV offices were expected to be open for business on Aug. 18.

Ayala’s news conference is scheduled for 10 a.m. on the front steps of the DMV in Wethersfield.
